Look at that fabulous lineup!  Wheeeee!!   We are in for a phenomenal ride on Tuesday evening. 

 The Voice Finale airs at 8:00 PM on NBC and the winner will finally be announced. I will be monumentally surprised if it is not Sawyer Fredericks.  I predicted his win months ago!  I feel many did as well. He is just a very, very special young talent. 

It will also be exciting to see the Top 20 – hopefully they will all get a chance to shine through a performance or two.  Go MIA Z and INDIA! 

Have fun watching tonight’s show and make sure you come back often to comment.

  1. If Sawyer doesn’t win it will be only because Blake’s fans voted to give him the win. Sawyer is completely authentic. The way he uses his voice to convey emotion is well beyond his years. His itune sales should be more than enough to crown him the winner.

  2. Boy that Fogarty – Fredericks duet was loud. The key was too high for Sawyer. They couldn’t transpose it down a step? Ridiculous.

  3. Fogerty was barely present. Not sure he even noticed Sawyer was there. Too bad, it could have been a great moment for both us and Sawyer!

  5. Placement order went exactly as I had guessed.

    My mom tuned in to the finale with me last night. She wasn’t too impressed with Sawyer and Joshua because they could not be heard above the band. She thought that Koryn and Meghan were better because they could be heard more.

  6. I’m thrilled for Sawyer! He did a tremendous job, and that voice he’s got just kills me! His vocal skills are way beyond his age! Pharrell did a super job as Sawyer’s coach. It sounds like Republic Records is super excited to have Sawyer on their roster. This young man is certain to be the show’s first big star if they don’t screw this up!

  7. I found a song of Sawyer’s on YouTube that he recorded before being on the Voice called Good Storm. You HAVE GOT to check it out MCL! The songwriting is beyond exceptional, and his voice just soars. GORGEOUS!! That show sure found quite a gem of an artist. To me, both Sawyer and Mia Z were the most unique of the bunch this season.

  8. Thank you Anita!! Well check it out now. Can’t wait to hear it.

    And, I agree, Sawyer and Mia Z were in a class of their own.
